LAHORE: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Monday busted a racket of Chinese nationals involved in trafficking Pakistani girls to China by contracting marriages.

Deputy Director FIA Jamil Ahmad Khan Mayo said the authorities, as part of a crackdown against foreigners involved in illegal activities in the country, arrested eight Chinese nationals from Lahore airport and other areas on the charges of trafficking young women to China after marrying them.

According to the official, the suspects, with the assistance of Pakistani agents, contracted marriages with unsuspecting local girls and then trafficked them to China where the victims were forced into prostitution. The accused include a Chinese woman as well, he added.
